Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 116600

When Rolex released their teaser video to BaselWorld 2014, everyone who viewed the video talked about the fine fluted bezel, the apparent colour of rose gold, the perhaps blatant imagery of the moon and the lack of the Cyclops on the Crystal. What most people did not realise and only a few of the eagle eyed amongst us did, was that there was two watches shown to us on the video however it is the “fluted bezel” watch that is shown for the longer duration of time. The other watch was shown to us first but only a small glimpse, blink and you’ll miss it. The appearance of this watch was fairly thick in size with a flat bezel and again no Cyclops.

Officine Panerai PAM508 Special Edition

6 February 2014 12:57:00 GMT

Three years ago, the cult world of Panerai went into meltdown over a watch encased in bronze with a very limited, one year only run of 1,000pcs with the fitting nickname of the “Bronzo”. The watch, model reference PAM382, was an instant hit and saw collectors scrambling to get their name down to ensure delivery of this distinctive timepiece.  As we all know, we live in a culture where ownership of a rare item results in a premium to gain possession of such an exclusive piece. This is something that was evident straight away with the Bronzo as the worldwide production of 1,000 was never going to quench the thirst of the Panerai faithful. It was the first time Panerai had made any of their collection in bronze, let alone the Submersible, therefore something new was bound to be immensely desirable.
